Small painful, inflamed lump near collar bone. Taken shots for flu, hepatitis A, HPV. Could this be due to vaccines?

Hi I was at the Doctors this past Tuesday for my first Physical on 6 years. Upon which i received my flu vaccine , hepatitis A shot, first HPV shot and one other shot I can t remember. Today I noticed a small lump near my collar bone (praying this is a lymph node).Its a little inflamed and has some pain. Just wondering if this could be from one or both of the vaccines I received. Thank You

Thanks for writing your query.
The swelling that you had mentioned could be a lymph node swelling. It is difficult to say without seeing the swelling what it is. There is possibility that you had developed due to flu vaccine. If it is painful, apply ice on the swelling & keep a watch on the size of swelling. If the swelling should decrease in 4-5 days , but if it is increasing in size & pain doesnot subside that do visit your local doctor.
Such type of lymph node sweling are seen after vaccination & subsides.

Wish you good health.
